As existing safety professionals reach retirement age and companies look to hire more safety staff, the shortage of qualified safety professionals in the workplace will continue to increase. To help bring awareness to and recognition of achievement in the field of safety, the National Safety Council is pleased to announce its scholarship program.
Through a variety of methods and awards, NSC provides individuals who are interested in pursuing safety as a career with funding for education, certifications and continuing education opportunities.
NSC Student Member Congress & Expo Program
First awarded in 2017, this program provides student members full funding to attend the NSC Congress & Expo, the world's premier safety conference. Student members receiving this scholarship will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the NSC Congress & Expo and have the opportunity to partner with Young Professional Division members to help guide their Congress & Expo experience, including education and networking opportunities.
Women in Safety Scholarship
Scheduled to be awarded for the first time in 2018, the Women in Safety Scholarship will provide a renewable scholarship for women studying safety in the workplace. Any woman enrolled in a post-secondary program is eligible. Applications will be accepted starting in November 2017.
Certification Assistance Program
The only piece of the scholarship program not geared toward active students, the CAP program helps individuals currently working in safety achieve higher levels of training or certification.
A celebration of truly exceptional scholars, the NSC Scholars program will be awarded for the first time in 2020.
